  • Council reshapes draft "memorials" policy

    Nov 20, 2014 | via HeraldSun.com 

    City Council members appear likely to endorse a policy that allows the removal of roadside memorials on public property, but signaled Thursday they don't want one as strict as what the city staff initially proposed. The final version will allow memorials to remain as long as they don't attract complaints from Durham residents, and will specify that a removal should occur only after 45 days' notice to the person or group that erected it.

On April 29th 2014, I was in my car coming back from office and i got hit by a lady driving other car. she was under the influence of drug(Marijuana). In this accident my car got totaled and i suffered neck and shoulder injury. Now my treatment is completed(no surgeries) and total treatment amount is 15k and I lost my wages for 1 week. I would like to know who much i can expect as a settlement amount. Will also like to know if it is worth to hire an attorney as this is no fault case.
This is a personal injury matter and you need to see an attorney who handles accident cases. It is not criminal defense,...
My daughter was pulled over & charged with a DUI in NC. The officer said he pulled her over because the light around her license plate was out, when in fact it was not out. In addition, he did not state "probable cause" on the citation. Can she fight this?
Yes, she can fight it and she should. The officer will most likely prepare and submit a more detailed report than the...
Pretrial Motion to Suppress and Dismiss for Destruction of Evidence; 2 Officers gave sworn testimony(on stand);Questioned about Destroyed Videotape and ALL elements of Impaired driving best said state presented their entire case over my attorneys objection;Evidence included probable cause, FST clues, BAC Result, Waiver Questions;Nevertheless, Judge granted Suppression and also Dismissed the case; Order was not titled "preliminary determination" anywhere.Based on these fact should this Dismissal be treated as an acquittal as the Judge accepted ALL the state's evidence and found it insufficient after the suppression? Remember the State had an opportunity to establish a prima facie case on the charge which is why I think my case is unique and state erred in presenting ALL their evidence.
VERY interesting and thought provoking question; clearly Brady v. Maryland and confrontation issues abound. Yet, the...
About a year ago I blew a FAIL when I tried to start my car in the morning. I had taken cough medicine in the middle of the night because I was sick. I guess it was still lingering in my system. I have had no other violations over the last year. My restrictions are a .000 over 3 years. I have a SmartStart device on my car. I am halfway through my time. I am a good student with a 3.71 GPA and I work at a great company now. I have turned my life around. I am very scared that I might get my license revoked for a year and I can't have that happen. One person at the breathalizer place told me not to worry and that I dont need an attorney. They just had a hearing and everything was fine. I'm not sure what to do but I need to make sure that I don't get my license suspended. I need this dropped.
Get an Attorney Fast! and one experienced in ACR hearings at the DMV. You could go to the hearing and the Hearing...
The police car initially parked, followed me for 5 minutes before pulling me over for slow driving. I knew he was pacing me and didnt want to get stuck with speeding. I was going exactly 5 under because it was 2AM and I was lost. There was a point where it was 45 and I thought it was 35, but only briefly. I received a provisional DWI, G.S 20-138.3. The police investigation report left out all details, but marked "yes" to drugs, instead the factual "unknown" option. I blew a 0 on a breathalyzer, and was given no controlled substance test. I was detained for 30 minutes and additionally had a field sobriety test. The flashing lights where left on the entire time and I had their flashlights in my eyes, thus impairing my sight. I also wasn't wearing my glasses, was tired, cold, and had to pee.
Yes. Retain counsel immediately. Maybe this can be nipped in the bud.
What is the difference between Serious bodily injury vs regular bodily injury in a DUI case in North Carolina? I know Seriously bodily injury is a Gross Aggravating Factor.
That would be a question for the fact finder. Serious injury to another person caused by the defendant's impaired...
I'm 17 and I was arrested Friday night for my first DUI. My BAC was .16 and I have no prior driving history. My passenger was 15 years old and arrested for underage drinking. It looks like I'll be charged with Level 1 DUI, does that mean I'm going to go to jail for this?
If you are convicted, you will most likely be facing a mandatory minimum of thirty days in jail, plus probation. There...
